Full description

If you love snow and winter and feel like experiencing a new and fascinating activity, don't miss our snowshoe hike to Lake Scaffaiolo, in the Corno delle Scale Regional Park.

Wearing special snowshoes, you will walk on fresh snow to discover enchanting and evocative places. An expert guide will lead you along a beautiful 10 km itinerary, immersed in silence and embraced by the uncontaminated nature of the Park.

You will then reach the Lago della Ninfa, surrounded by trees reflected in its waters that will leave you speechless.

What we will do

The meeting is at 9 a.m. in Lizzano in Belvedere (BO). We will be welcomed by the guide, who will hand us the snowshoes to wear for the hike and give us a short briefing on the activity.

The route we are going to take will be about 10 km long and will have a maximum altitude difference of 350 metres. We will walk for about three hours on fresh snow, following the guide, who will accompany us to ensure maximum safety.

We will be immersed in unspoilt nature and the magical silence of the Corno delle Scale Regional Park: all we will hear will be our footsteps with snowshoes on the freshly fallen snow.

We will make several stops to admire enchanting mountain scenery and snowy panoramas that will leave us breathless. We will reach the Lago della Ninfa (Lake of the Nymph ) of tectonic origin, located on the slopes of Mount Cimone.

The experience lasts a total of 5 hours, 3 of which are actual walking time.

Who it is aimed at

The activity is at an intermediate level, so some walking ability is required. The minimum age for participation is 16 years. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
